Non-Healing Wound Treatment
Ozark Surgical Group has partnered with Baxter Regional Wound Healing Center to aggressively treat non-healing wounds. A wound is considered non-healing if it doesn’t heal appropriately within an acceptable time frame and fails to respond to debridement, dressing changes, and antibiotics. Tissue hypoxia commonly prohibits wound healing. Those with cardiovascular disease, compromised blood flow, and diabetes are at an increased risk of developing a non-healing wound. Increased protein intake and increased oxygen to the affected area can aid the healing process. If needed, hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used to force high concentrations of oxygen to the hypoxic area.
